Washington Post: Facebook wants to be more like TikTok. That’s a bad idea.. “The thing about network effects is that they work both ways. When your network is growing, it keeps getting steadily more valuable. But if it starts to shrink, each departing user makes the service slightly less attractive to those who remain.

It needs to protect that nice, wide moat — which is frankly looking a bit stagnant.”
